Miami Times staff report | 11/21/2013, 9 a.m.

Members of the Miami-Dade Chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council [NPHC] rallied to serve the residents of Camillus House. Over a dozen NPHC members met to prepare and serve meals to over 150 residents at the center’s Downtown Central location.

Council members prepared and served a breakfast menu that consisted of grits, eggs, sausage, biscuit, assorted breakfast pastries and hot and cold beverages. Volunteers also donated food items and began the meal preparation for the center’s annual Thanksgiving meal which will be served next week. Camillus House is a Christian-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide hospitality and respect for life through programs that provide food, clothing, shelter, addiction counseling, behavioral health, job training, and health care to the poor and homeless of South Florida. For over 50 years, Camillus House has provided humanitarian aid to the indigent and homeless populations of Miami-Dade County, Florida.
